Subject: Nice slice of life in 1943
Good review of basic diet concepts.
Subject: An Overview, But Little Else
Involved film about nutrition during the war that essentially says, in ten different ways, you have to eat more then you used to. Oh...and those yucky things you never cared for are now gonna be staples, because the stuff you really like is now rationed. War is fun!
That restaurant looked like a coney island joint. Mmmm! Film's over, I've written my review, and its 12:35 AM now, and guess who's headed to the National Coney Island.
Subject: Interesting film
An excellent historic film showing civilian suggestions in maintaining good health in W.W.II.
Subject: Mmm! Sweetbreads!
This fun film is very similar to ÂFood For FightingÂ in talking about wartime eating habits. I like this film a lot better actually, as itÂs scope is a lot wider and itÂs footage and narration sometimes goes on the ridiculous side. We learn how the Europeans had to learn to ration food properly (thanks to the Americans!). This is quite interesting as it provides a glimpse of the way Europe had to change during the war. The film does head back to America and tells of all the wonderous things you can do with food rations! For heavens sakes, eat more of the foods you wouldnÂt think of eating! Parsnips! Turnips! Squash!! Mmm Mmm Good! Reccomended!
